Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it.
Oft-criticized quarterback Geno Smith has been named the Jets’ starter (for now) — which is good news for him, at least.
The New York Jets’ quarterback competition appears over before it even got started.
Forget that his team has yet to play a game, Mike Maccagnan is still viewed as a conquering hero of sorts.
Mike Maccagnan has given Jets fans a reason to believe, but as long as the most important position on the field remains a crapshoot, the real expectations cannot begin.
Given their relative contributions to the Jets the last two years, it’s hard to write Geno Smith and Muhammad Wilkerson in the same sentence.
As far as Geno Smith is concerned, it’s going to take a lot more than a few draft rumors and a veteran coming off a major injury to take his job away.
“As painful as it is for some Jets fans, I see some progress,” Gruden said Tuesday on a conference call with reporters.
The embattled Jets quarterback’s problems have never really been about what hangs off his right shoulder, but what sits between his ears.
Geno Smith is making a pitch for a much-improved third NFL season.
Coach Todd Bowles didn’t specify whether the Jets want to add a quarterback from the draft or free agency, but the team holds the No. 6 pick — and Oregon’s Marcus Mariota could be available.
A two-time Pro Bowler and former NFL passing yards leader, the Virginia product appeared in 11 games in 2014 but attempted just 10 passes.
Todd Bowles was asked about the uncertainty surrounding the Jets quarterback position and the rookie head coach didn’t exactly give third-year signal caller Geno Smith a ringing endorsement.
The Jets are not going to reach for anyone with their first pick in the draft. As far as they are concerned, who they end up choosing will be about talent, not about need.
Ryan Fitzpatrick, acquired from Houston for a conditional seventh-round draft pick last week, is expected to be fully healthy by training camp and compete with Geno Smith for the quarterback job.
